I know, that's what it looks like, but it's actually not. madExcept has to insert itself into every newly created thread, in order to be able to properly report crashes in secondary threads. And the items in the callstack you're seeing there are just the madExcept "try..except" frame, nothing else. So this callstack doesn't actually indicate a crash inside of madExcept at all.

Unfortunately the callstack is very short and not very helpful. It seems that shdocvw.dll has created a thread which somehow jumps to a memory page which doesn't belong to any EXE or DLL file.
